The Westport Fishermen’s Association recognizes the importance of ongoing support for college students and awards up to three continuing education $500 scholarships a year to students entering their sophomore, junior or senior year. Undergraduate students can receive an award for up to four years, and need not be prior year recipients to apply.
The WFA continuing education scholarship is open to incoming college sophomores, juniors and seniors. Applicants must be sponsored by a WFA member. Additional application criteria and instructions are online at http://westportriver.org/scholarship/ The deadline for submission is July 31, 2016.
The WFA Continuing Scholarship awards will be announced in August and checks will be disbursed at that time.
